"I say each era is a band unto themselves and should be celebrated for their differences not picked apart"

Welcome to the mix,and not to be adversarial here,but why can't we feel however we want about the subject,I surely don't appreciate being told I can't be critical of something because it doesn't sit well with you.

Take it easy; I understand.
I won't be critical of people being critical. I'm not a seasoned poster, just a seasoned reader of posters.

I did not want to make you feel unwelcome,and it had nothing to do with being critical or not being critical,when you state that someone is wrong because they don't see things the same as you,that is insulting and ignorant.I would like to welcome you and hope you become a frequent poster and look forward to conversing with you down the road.

No worries, and thanks for the thought.
I realize that sentiment, sarcasm, and directness are easily misinterpreted in short unfamiliar text. I, myself tend to write a little sarcastically, but with good intentions.
I promise you, though, I never meant to imply that you or anyone was wrong. I just shot out a thought to people who don't know me. I seldom post on forums; I'm more of a "lurker" I guess.
I read this one for the great info that often comes up. Despite my take on live shows, I've collected tapes for thirty five years.
Sorry if I came off pretentious.

Hey man, if criticism's your kick, I wish it for you. I'm just saying that comparing '72 Dead to '82 Dead is like apples to oranges.

Firstly,criticism is not "my thing",you might not want to make assumptions about people you don't know.If being critical about something has a valid place in a discussion,I will be brutally frank,that is what intelligent adults do,hippie douche bags on the other hand find it negative and counter productive to the whole GD ideal,but after all they are hippie douche bags,judging by your opening post here on the forum,telling a bunch of people you don't know how they should conduct themselves,I will go out on limb and say your handle of excess is not a reference to your level of intelligence in comparison to say,a moron,I think you are on equal footing with your average moron.You might be better suited to your goofy Facebook,GD game creating friends,because you are out of your depth here.This will hopefully close any (definitely on my part) interaction between us for the duration of your participation on this forum.

.......and that's why I usually avoid forums. They're heavily peppered with misanthropic creatures like yourself who can only feel self worth through the disparagement of others under the guise of "being brutally frank".

I truly pity you. Embrace your contempt as you grow old, one day it will be all you have left.
